Dip into a melting-pot of sexual pleasure with the latest collection in the Herotica series. The exotic and the erotic meet in journeys of desire as diverse as the cultural backgrounds of the characters. Each short story is an example of the heated passion and the politics of arousal that erupt when people of different cultures come together. The authors explore their fantasies, their prejudices, and the ways in which cultural differences can be at once an attracting force and a seemingly impenetrable barrier. Twenty-six tales of complex relationships draw a multi-hued picture of race, religion, and culture's impact on passion and desire. In one a Chinese New Year's dragon dancer entrances an African-American woman. In another, Pakistani and U.S. virgins muddle through their assumptions about each other's sexual past and find their way to a feverish coupling. Embracing her Native American traditions more closely, a Metis shows her white lover the passionate inclusiveness of her spiritual world. And Indian and Puerto Rican pre-med students turn up the heat of first lust in the midst of a Chicago winter.
